Reporter: OK. Coming to 2016 Bid, Is NCR ready for hosting Olympics this soon.
AK: YES, we are, as always. Delhi, Gurugram and Noida/Ghaziabad.
Reporter: But you told earlier, they are corrupt. Will AAP form an alliance of sorts with the corrupt?
AK: We have provided them with Temporary Honesty Certificate (THC). It will be revoked as soon as Olympics are over.
AK: ???????? :P Don’t make a question mark face, otherwise I will put questions for you on my twitter page.
Reporter: But does NCR have the required infrastructure to host the Olympics?
AK: That’s what I am saying, Modi ji has not done anything for the city.
Reporter: But sir you are the CM.
AK: That’s why I am raising the questions and not you.
